“Now we have to focus on the World Cup, we have to have the same mentality and use that experience to improve. The team is very young and the World Cup is just around the corner.

“I hope I will be part of the team, that’s my goal. Everyone would love to play in the World Cup and it’s a dream that I have. Milan is a huge opportunity for me, I focus on that and I feel good. “
